Ubuntu :: Hide User From Login Screen Lucid?

Oct 29, 2010

I actually got my boss to let me put Ubuntu on a laptop for a client and it works like a champ. I have it all setup but there's one thing I'd like to do on it. I have an admin user (the one I created during the install) and a desktop user (for the person receiving the laptop). I would like to hide my admin user from the login screen, so when it boots up all the user sees is their name. If I need to help them with something/install software I can choose other and login as my admin user.

It appears this was rather easy in 9.10 and previous but I can't figure out how to do it in 10.04. To be clear, I want to edit the user list, not disable it entirely. I've tried changing the user id, I found a post that claimed IDs less than 1000 were not shown on the login screen, this proved un-true in my case.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Black Screen After Login

May 4, 2010

I get a black screen (with tiny bits of white on opposite corners of the screen) every time after logging into Kubuntu Lucid AMD64. The only thing I can do is move my mouse pointer over that black screen which doesn't go away. I booted into recovery mode and with command prompt typed "startx" to start graphical mode. That resulted in the same black screen. Then I decided to reboot and install Fluxbox via the command prompt under recovery mode. Now, I'm able to view graphically under Fluxbox after selecting it over the default KDE and logging in. But how do I get regular KDE/Kubuntu to work again? I don't know what happened to make it stop working!

Ubuntu :: Lucid X64 Boots To Login Screen

May 2, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 yesterday, overall, I do like this; but, it has issues:Sometimes, it boots to a login screen, no graphics. I must reboot; then,I do get the graphical login screen.My graphics is an integrated nVidia GeForce 6100. nForce 405.When I look to download more drivers, I see Hardware Drivers jockey-gtk,
and nVidia Binary X.Org driver 185 are installed. I suspect the graphics drivers to be the issue.I see the option to install X.Org driver 173, and 96 for older cards. Is my card that old?My desktop: x64 with 1 gig of RAM.Lucid also boots slower than Karmic, could this be the nVidia driver as well?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Past Login Screen In 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Jun 11, 2010

I installed Ubuntu for the first time yesterday by running Wubi on Windows Vista Home Premium. For all of yesterday and up to lunchtime today Ubuntu was working fine. I followed the instructions on a forum post to remove Evolution Mail via the synaptic applications menu. I proceeded to log out of Ubuntu and reboot (I hoestly can't remember what for) Anyway, ever since I have not been able to log in to Ubuntu. I enter my username and password as normal and they are accepted, however moments the log in page displays again. This continues in an endless loop. The password is definitely correct because I get an authentication error if I enter anything else. I know I am not the only person experiencing this issue.

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Not Logging In According To The Login Screen Settings?

Jun 30, 2010

I want my Ubuntu 10.04 to login to an Xterm session every time, so I changed it to auto login to Xterm in the login screen settings. This worked fine until I went to do something in a gnome session again, and now even though it is still selected as logging into Xterm automatically, it logs into a Gnome session. Can anyone help me with fixing this?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Login Screen Disappears At LOGOUT?

Sep 14, 2010

So I have Ubuntu Lucid machines about 20 of them. Configured via ldap authentication. I seem to be running into a rather strange logout problem. Whenever users click logout they're logged out, however after that all i get is the background screen with the cursor. The cursor is able to move, but no login screen.If i go to a terminal window alt+f1 and do a service gdm restart, then the login screen goes back to normal.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Slow Boot Before Login Screen?

May 5, 2011

I just did a fresh install of Lucid on my desktop. The boot background splash screen comes up very fast, but then it is about a 1 minute wait until the login prompt appears. Then once I enter my login credentials, GNOME loads up ASAP. It wasn't this slow before I reinstalled. Anyone know why this could be? Everything works.

Ubuntu :: Blank Boxes In Login Screen (Lucid Lynx?

Jul 30, 2010

I installed Lucid Lynx on a medium-old system, Athlon 2200+ with an ATI video card. No problems during the install itself. The problem is that when I boot into the login screen, I get a bunch of blank boxes. If I move the mouse around, I can see various areas highlighted, but I can't actually see the menu options. I can type in my username and password to log in (not being able to see what I'm typing), but then the desktop panels are empty boxes - once again I can mouse over them to get empty drop down menus, but I can't see anything else.

I've had enough experience with Ubuntu in the past to do some troubleshooting myself. Usually I would just boot into a terminal, switch Xorg to use the vesa driver and go from there. However, a number of decisions in Lucid Lynx have made troubleshooting practically impossible.1 - No grub menu. No way for me to pick a safe boot option.2 - Install CD doesn't come with any rescue boot options.3 - Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to kill the X server and Ctrl-Alt-F1 to boot into a shell don't work.4 - the default filesystem is ext4, which means my old rescue CDs aren't likely to be of much help.Sigh. I understand that Ubuntu is trying to make things look pretty and all, but these user-friendly changes are making it near impossible to fix a problem like the one I have. I just downloaded a System Rescue Linux CD but it's kind of late to be trying it out now.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop Launcher On Lucid Login Screen ?

Jan 20, 2011

Put an remote desktop launcher on the lucid login screen.

I'm running a ubuntu lab, and adding an rdesktop launcer to the login screen would really make login much easier for the users, so they don't have to login twice. First into lucid and then into windows with rdesktop.

I'v already made the rdesktop launcher on the lucid desktop, but where (if possible) do I put it so it will also be avalible in the lucid login screen ?

Ubuntu Servers :: Make Different Login Screen For Each User?

Jan 15, 2011

I have a web server running Ubuntu Maverick Server Edition. I changed the /etc/motd file to something custom (some awesome ASCII art). This changes the login for every single user on the entire system. My question is this: Is there a way to change that login file and make it different for each user or is that the only file and it can only be done system-wide.

Ubuntu :: 10.04: Login Screen Without User Names Displayed?

May 4, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04. When I get to the login screen, I am given a choice of the usernames available on the computer.

What I want is a simple username field to fill in, so other users of this computer won't know what user name accounts on the machine. Unfortunately, the only other option I can see is for automatic login - the last thing I want!

In the past, when I logged into Ubuntu the username foield was left blank. How can I achieve the same in 10.04?

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 - User Listed At Bottom Of Login Screen

May 23, 2010

Ever since the intro of Grub2, on the main Log-in screen, there is a "User" listed at the bottom of whoever is listed on the Users Log-in. Just what or who is this used for?. If it is 'clicked' on, then it asks for a password, as if 'it' is some kind of "user". But, as I don't know just what 'it' is for, therefore I also don't know 'its' password either.

Fedora Installation :: GDM Login Screen - Cannot Authenticate User

Mar 23, 2009

Previously I have a hard disk running OpenSUSE partitioned as follows:
Code:
/dev/sda1 = swap
/dev/sda2 = /
/dev/sda3 = /home

I redid the default partitioning scheme that Fedora tries to use (no LVM crap). Basically told it to make the above layout and to format swap and slash, but NOT to format /home because I want that data. I had it go ahead and install grub on the MBR of this HD as well. The install seems to have went ok and it rebooted. That is when the first problem comes up. I never see grub. I just get a black screen then a bar at the bottom that progressively turns blue, which I assume is Fedora loading.

This is all well and good, then it gets to the login screen (GDM) and I try to log in as root and it tells me "can't authenticate user" hangs for a bit, then goes back to the log in box. I try to get a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F#) and nothing. So I guess I have 3 problems in order of significance:
- Why no grub?
- Why no virtual console?
- Why root can't log in?

Normally I would edit kernel option line at the grub prompt to boot into single user mode and fix the problem, but can't. I was able to use the "rescue mode" on the Fedora DVD to accomplish this, but have not had a chance to figure things out any further. I don't think having a /home created by another OS would prevent root from logging in since root "home dir" is /root.
